“Dios mío ...”
I’ve looked at every store but just can’t seem to find the right gift for [Name]!
She likes anything, as Kiku would say it, Kawaii~
“Ugh…POR QUÉ NO PUEDO ENCONTRAR NADA POR LA POBRE CHICA?!”(WHY CAN’T I FIND ANYTHING FOR THE POOR GIRL?!)
I guess I’ll just have to go to the one other person for this kind of stuff.
I took my phone out of my pocket and dialed the number.
“Stupido idiota! Do you’a know what time’a it is?!”
Yes, Lovi, he’s my last option.
“Just’a get the ragazza a stuffed animal or’a something I don’t’a know…”
“I can’t do that Lovi! I want to get her something special…she...means a lot to me...”
The line on the other end is silent.
“Lovi?” I question to see if he’s still there.
“Are you in love with [Name]?”
I turned red.
“N-N-N-No! L-Lovi that is completely out of the question, she’s my niece!”
I could hear him chuckle in the background.
“It’s not like’a your actually related to the ragazza.”
Well…he was right, [Name] isn’t related to me at all actually…
“-tonio…Antonio!” Lovi yelled into the phone.
Dios, I must have spaced out for a bit…
“Eh…sorry about that Lovi…” I rubbed the back of my head
“…you…your’a actually thinking about’a it aren’t’a you?”
I made a quick gasp
I heard him clearly covering his mouth to suppress his laughter.
“Cállate! No I wasn’t!”
This kid won’t just stop laughing!
I waited for him to quiet down,
He laughed a few more moments before clearing his throat.
“You know…a San Valentino doesn’t have to be something bought, you can make something or do something for suo…”
He’s right! I don’t need to get something for her! I can do something!
“Ah your right Lovi! Muchas gracias! Te debo una!” (Thank you so much! I owe you one!)
“sì sì, ora andare via! Ho bisogno di fare la pasta!”(yeah yeah, now go away! I need to make pasta!)
I hang up, and go to the nearest store to buy mi amor some roses.
“I think I’ll just show up at her school with flower’s as a surprise!”
Oh I can’t wait to see her happy face~!
“It’s 5 minutes before her class ends! I can’t wait!”
I slide out of my car and walk up to the school,
“Hmm…let’s see, her last class is Spanish…”
Ahh~ mi chica has taken my language for me~
I go through the front doors to the front desk,
The lady at the desk looks up to me from her glasses and her face turns red, must be sick?
“What room is your Spanish class in?”
“Oh, it’s all the way down that hall at the very end, and it will be on your left.”
She points to my side.
“Gracias señorita~” I smile and wave before walking down the hall
I check my watch, only 30 seconds left before the bell rings.
I peek through the window so she won’t notice me, she was sitting patiently almost fidgeting, why does she look so scared?
Before I could look better the bell rings and I quickly step away from the door now crowded with students bumping into each other to get out of the class.
I see [Name] walk out but before I even got a chance to call her name she‘s out of the halls in a blink of an eye!
Why is the chica so rushed!
The hallways start deserting so I decide to follow back where [Name] went to.
Walking through the halls and turn the corner and see her at her locker looking timid…
I quickly hide and peek from that corner to watch her, something is not right.
She slowly opens her locker, and sighs in relief once fully opened.
Was she expecting something to happen? Maybe be plummeted by valentines cards? Is she that popular?
Now’s good as ever I start stand up to walk over there when a bunch of boys from the other end run over and throw water balloons at poor [Name].
I watch in horror as she then slips onto the ground soaking wet, the boys run off leaving her there.
¿POR QUÉ DIABLOS HICIERON ESO?!(WHY THE HELL DID THEY DO THAT?!)
I felt rage boil into me, something I haven’t felt since that British kid ticked me off.
My anger calms as I see some girls come up to her.
Maybe these are her friends that have come to hel-
“This is what you get you little bitch.”
I freeze in place.
“Someone like you doesn't deserve to be paid attention to; Alfie shouldn't have even wasted his time looking at you like you were actually pretty.”
I watch her curl up into a ball on the floor and stare at the floor in pity.
“Since you don’t have a Valentine~ It seems like you won’t be going to the dance tonight~ did you know that everyone in the school has one? Even that scary kid Ivan? This proves how worthless of a person you are. Why don’t you just go die in a hole low life~”
The group of girls laugh and walk away to leave poor [Name] on the ground.
She grabs her things quickly and runs out of the building not even caring about her clothes.
I slump to the ground, roses I was supposed to give her in hand.
… ¿CÓMO PUDE SER TAN IDIOTA?!?!?! (HOW COULD I BE SUCH AN IDIOT?!?!?!)
I should have known it wasn't just a
“I bumped into someone”
She was being bullied this whole time! WHY DID SHE NOT TELL ME!
AM I NOT RESPONSIBLE ENOUGH!? AM I NOT PROTECTING HER WELL!?!?!
Tears drip onto the floor as I weep…
Por favor, perdóname mi amor…(Please forgive me, my love…)
Rage, sorrow and other mixed emotions flow throughout my body...
Crying is painful…
And to imagine [Name] crying almost every day…just makes me more lower ranked…
I will make this the best Valentine for you.
Lo juro por dios. (I swear to God)
